Expressive Chilean Riesling from the cool Bio Bio region.

Quietly complex on the nose with fresh lime notes combining with a steely minerality and gentle honeysuckle flora. The palate is mid-weight and off-dry with persistent flavours of lime, there is a natural salinity which gives contrast yet lovely balance. It finishes clean with a lingering flinty character.

Vines were planted in 1993 at the Fundo Quitralman, Mulchén vineyard in the Bio-Bio Valley, 500km south of Santiago. Grapes are handpicked pressed. Selected yeasts were added, and two-thirds of the must fermented in neutral barrels. The remaining third fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures (12–14ºC) to preserve the aromas and freshness in the wine. Once fermentation was complete, the new wine was left in contact with its fine lees with periodic stirring (batonnage). Prior to bottling, the wine was fined with adjusted doses of bentonite and cold stabilized to prevent any future tartaric precipitation.

Emiliana is one of the world’s most important producers of organic and biodynamic wines and the largest in South America. They have a total of 997 hectares under vine in the valleys of Casablanca, Maipo, Colchagua, and Cachapoal of which 923ha are IMO certified organic and the remaining 77 in conversion. Their spectacular biodynamic vineyard and winery at Los Robles is a model that attracts visiting viticulturalists and winemakers from all over the world. General Manager José Guilisasti and winemaking consultant Alvaro Espinoza were key to establishing this project to convert a large commercial winery into a commercially viable organic one. These innovative wines are made with great care and attention and the results are inspiring.

Oysters and shellfish, white meats and smoked salmon. Also great with vegetarian dishes and Asian cuisine.
